Background - what is GA7?

The General Agreement 7 (GA7) negotiations are the seventh set of negotiations that have occurred with the Civil Service Association (CSA) under the general agreement framework since 2002.

The primary agreement being negotiated for replacement is the Public Service and Government Officers General Agreement 2014 (PSGOGA), which covers more than 33,000 public service and government officers in approximately 100 public sector agencies.

A number of other agency level general agreements to which the CSA is the union party ("satellite agreements") will also be negotiated under the GA7 framework, concurrent with the GA7 negotiations.

The agreements expire on 12 June 2017.

Wages Policy

The negotiations are subject to the Public Sector Wages Policy Statement 2016, available here. The Policy Statement applies to all agreements that expire after 1 June 2016.

A copy of the log of claims is available here.
